Genius Hour

Every Friday our class has a Genius Hour session. It one of our favourite learning times of the week because we can explore our own passions. ┬áDuring Genius Hour we focus on making a creation of some kind…..we let our imaginations run free!

We use lots of different skills during Genius Hour – here are just some of the skills we develop:

  • co-operating
  • collaborating
  • creativity
  • problem solving
  • planning
  • reflecting
  • predicting
  • time management
  • thinking ahead
  • co-ordinating ideas with others and planning with them
  • time management
  • cutting
  • gluing
  • mixing
  • painting…..and so so so many more.

During this term we have had a cardboard challenge – items had to be based on using cardboard and 2 of our own choices. This week (week 4) we are doing an iMovie challenge – this is something completely new and we’re looking forward to telling a story using this app on our iPads. Stay tuned for our final results.

    • Genius Hour is my favourite part of our learning week – I love it too! My lucky dip was to do sit ups – not my favourite thing to do!
